An NIH funded postdoctoral fellowship is available to start immediately.


Qualifications: PhD in neuroscience or related field. Patch-clamp or 
other electrophysiological experience is desirable, but candidates with 
strong technical skills or a background in physics or engineering are 
also encouraged to apply. Strong computer skills are a distinct advantage.

Project: The project is part of an NIH funded grant aimed at elucidating 
the synaptic and biophysical mechanisms that give rise to complex 
receptive field properties in retinal neurons. Current work focuses on 
direction-selective ganglion cells, and the role of metabotropic 
glutamate receptors in neural signaling. The candidate will perform 
electrophysiological experiments on freshly isolated tissue, and there 
is the possibility of combining the physiological approach, with 
anatomical, imaging, molecular and computer modeling techniques.

Research Environment: The Neurological Sciences Institute 
(www.ohsu.edu/nsi/) is located in a new building on the West Campus of 
OHSU, adjacent to the Oregon National Primate Research Center and the 
Oregon Graduate Institute. The NSI faculty represents a wide range of 
scientific skills and experimental approaches, ranging from human, to 
whole animal, to imaging and molecular biological. Core facilities at 
NSI include electron-microscopy, two-photon and confocal microscopy.

Contact: Applicants should send a statement of research interests, and a 
recent CV including the names of 3 referees who can be contacted, to: Dr 
Rowland Taylor, NSI, 505 NW 185th Ave, Beaverton, OR, 97006.  Fax: (503) 
418-2501. Email: taylorw at ohsu.edu <mailto:taylorw at ohsu.edu>. Email 
submissions are preferred.
